March is National Nutrition Month, yay!!  Dust off your juicers and let’s get healthy.  Having  a healthy lifestyle isn’t just for people, it’s for our pets too.  There are several other people foods that dog’s can have too, what is your pup’s favorite treat?

Birdies in my backyard, sounds like spring and it’s winter ❄️

Does your dog have a night time sleeping habit? Mine does. He likes to sneak around my house and eat things, like this:

This is an eos lipgloss and it isn’t the first time he’s ruined a lipgloss of mine, I found him throwing an eos lipgloss up in the air and chasing after it like he would one of his toys. I immediately took it from him said “no, this is a choking hazard, no, no, no.”I then threw it away, I watched his eyes follow the lipgloss into the garbage, he wanted it and he was crushed that I threw his new found toy away. He does this thing where he sits down, lays down and then let’s out a grunt and it’s not just like grunt it’s like a “grunt, moan, huff, long sigh” he did that and then looked at me with those eyes that make me melt and think well it was only a $3.00 lip gloss, I’ll get another one & in his defense it’s shaped like a ball and smells so delicious.

Really, could you be mad at this face?

Knowing he once looked like this:

So imagine my surprise when I woke up the other day to a present on the couch, right next to my purse my dog had opened up my purse taken out my NEW strawberry sorbet eos lipgloss and ate the inside contents, then snuck back into my bedroom unnoticed. Leaving the mess on the couch. He didn’t even try to hide it, he could have at least buried the evidence in the couch cushion but he didn’t, this was a clear message that he has won the battle. So again I said “no, no, no, this is a bad dog” he looks at it smells the air and then does his beg trick I said “no this is a no, no, you are going to be sick”. He puts his head down like I harmed him and walks away from me his tail between his legs. Making me feel sad for him.

Soooo….

Last night I took my purse to bed with me stick it down right by my night stand, thinking it’s safe there right? wrong!!! At 3 in the morning… I wake to my dog rustling around in my purse, loud sniffing noises and scratching. My husband immediately yelled “knock it off Neo” I look down and right by my bed is Neo has his head inside my purse. He wanted more, I had no more, he swears my purse is a dispenser of wondrous edibles. He’s stolen gum from me, lotion and his latest obsession eos lipgloss. He’s very selective and only takes certain things I swear when he is digging in my purse his mind is like Blistex — no, Kiss my face — no, Bare Essentials — No, eos —- yes yes yes, Gum —- SCORE and then he finishes it off by checking to see if the showers open to see if he can steal the soap. He’s ate soap before and in the middle of the night threw it up, we had the hardest time cleaning it up because how do you really… clean soap up?

Now I looked it up eos is organic and there is no questionable ingredients, but I’m out $6.00 and just bought a new one last night. My purse is now far away from his reach but now every time I put my lip gloss on he sniffs the air and tries to lick my face, he’s seriously obsessed with eos lipgloss and I guess I am too since I have bought 3 of the same flavor this month.

What a crazy dog, am I the only dog owner who has a dog obsessed with smelly things?

Neo will be today’s door greeter for our #superbowl party he’s routing for the #seahawks because that is where his cousins live & they obviously have the prettier colors. 💙💚💙💚💚💚💙💙🐶🐶 he also can’t wait to check out those sexy bit**es in the #puppybowl. *Woof woof* Happy Sunday.

Does your dog sleep on your bed?

While in Bed Bath and Beyond browsing the pet section, a couple whisked by me, so fast I could feel the air move and the lady pointed & said “yep that’s the one” and the guy obediently grabbed the stairs for dogs, you know the ones that allow your tiny dog full access to your bed. They had invaded my space and I couldn’t hold my words, I said to the man “you allow that to happen?” and he said yes our new chihuahua barks because she cannot get up on the bed, she keeps me awake. I looked at my husband who was laughing at me, (I never approach strangers so he was amused) I pointed to him and said “he won’t let me allow the dog on our bed” the guy laughed, and I said “well, I have to” and looked at his wife she had a huge grin on her face. Ok at this point I looked at him and said “your a great guy” I looked at her and said “your a lucky lady” and my husband said to the man “your making me look bad.” And of course again I complained that our dog is not allowed on the bed. Although when my husbands not home, he’s allowed… sad thing is he is trained so well not to do it that he does things like this. Is your dog allowed your bed?

Merry Christmas  Christmas Blessings to Everyone

Happy Holidays! This ornament was given to me last year by my mother, she gives me one of these yearly ever since I was a little girl. It is significant because I don’t remember getting it last year, the only thing I knew this year was that my collection was missing one and I had to call my mother to ask her if I had gotten one she said of course and told me where she had put it. I don’t recall much of this time last year I was very sick, couldn’t walk, my hair was falling out, I couldn’t talk and didn’t recognize my own family. My husbands grandmother fell ill and passed away and his sister was diagnosed with cancer. This time was very scary for me. I didn’t know what was wrong with me, I was in and out visiting doctors and specialist. I bonded with my sister-in-law and through our illnesses I found strength from her, she had stage 4 cancer and was still doing 5k walks for charity, I felt inspired by her, and was confident that she and I would make it through this rough spot and everything would be ok, I hoped for a miracle and wanted so bad for us to be healthy. I finally received a diagnosis at the beginning of last year, the same week my sister-in-law lost her battle with cancer. It was absolutely devastating for our whole family, I felt like my heart was ripped out of my chest, she left behind her young boys, daughter, and husband. I have spent this year recovering going to physical therapy, speech therapy, visiting a nutritionist, I had to learn to write again and have been in counseling. It’s been a tough year, a few months ago my husbands best friend he has known since he was 5 years old was hit by a car while he was cycling, he spent a week in the ICU and we lost him. With this year ending I’m glad it’s over with but I’m also blessed to be alive, that in all the problems that I have made bonds with people that I would have not otherwise met, have a stronger bond with my husband, his family, my sister, mother and father. I also learned to cook, committed to being 100% plant-based (vegan) and graduated from eCornell’s Plant-Based Nutrition program and now have a Certification in Plant-Based Nutrition. Going forward I would like to start selling tags again and I will also like to focus some of my time on blogging about living a healthy kind life. I still have a long way to go I have a lot of obstacles with my health, but remain optimistic that things will be ok. I also hope my hair will continue to grow back. I hope everyone has many blessings in this new year to come, and we all are blessed with healthy happy lives. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year. I hope peace and love finds us all in this new year.
